Funny thing down here in Houston at Club RC guys are starting to run faster times with a slipper versus a center gear diff. They say because the traction is so high that they have to run such a high weight diff oil to stop diffing out that the cars are to edgy to drive.

Rick car look really good.

What is your reasoning for staying with 13mm shocks and not going to the 12mm that is common?

I can't wait for this car to hit the astroturf here! I feel the abilitly to run the shorty pack will save a lot of weight and be kickin. The 3.5 is awesome on turf if ran with sway bars all around, but I feel the lighter car will work even better.

well, that was not my call as I didn't design the car but for myself I really like the 13mm big bore shocks.. The car is a tad heaver then others and I think it is good to have the little extra size.. IMO

This is interesting LOL, When I sold my Hobby Pro USA 4wd buggy to build my new Caster Pro V4 I kept my body and was bored today so I wanted to see if it would fit on my Caster.. Well after a little bit of mods it fits and looks GREAT..
